Wife's duty towards her husband

Q 7: What are the duties of a wife towards her husband?

A: The wife should observe the following duties towards her husband: 1- Obeying him when he commands her with good as long as it is in her capacity. 2- Maintaining his honor, money and children. 3- Looking after his family. 4- Answering him if he asks to have intercourse with her. 5- Leaving his house only with his permission. 6- Assuming the house work done by her peers. In general, she has to treat him kindly and nicely, deal with him in the best manner and meet his bad conduct with good in order to live in harmony and have a peaceful marital life, with Allah's Will. The husband must also treat his wife kindly and nicely because of Allah's Saying: ...and live with them honourably. (Part No. 19; Page No. 355) And His Saying: And they (women) have rights (over their husbands as regards living expenses) similar (to those of their husbands) over them (as regards obedience and respect) according to what is reasonable, but men have a degree (of responsibility) over them. And Allâh is All-Mighty, All-Wise. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
